Join Dianne Bondy for a workshop exploring the radical act of learning to love the skin you are in. This unique practice will integrate physical yoga, journaling, and discussion centered on the philosophy of yoga as it relates to equanimity and unity. Explore making yoga poses accessible and empowering for all levels, shapes, and sizes. Learn how to listen to your body and connect with your inner strength while exploring the path to self-acceptance.
This workshop is for you if you’re a yoga practitioner looking to connect to your own body and sense of self-worth. It’s for you if you’re a yoga teacher wanting to learn how to make yoga practice more accessible and empowering to all.
Our sense of our bodies and our sense of self-worth do not develop in isolation, outside the context of our life experiences. A framework of body equity encourages us to consider all factors and contexts that influence how a person feels about themselves.
